Women in Economics

Learn from leading economists with "Women in Economics." Following the "Nobel Perspectives" model, under which UBS (a Swiss investment bank and finance company) has highlighted "the lives and work of Nobel Prize-winning economists," this video series uplifts the work of women in the field. Readers with limited economics knowledge should not fret, as the series focuses on making economic scholarship accessible to expert and non-expert audiences alike. Videos focus on economics scholarship generally, as well as highlighting gender inequities prevalent in the field and in economic outcomes. For example, in How will the pandemic impact emerging markets? IMF's Chief Economist Gita Gopinath expounds on COVID-19's influence over emerging market economies, noting the acute issues faced by those with less financial flexibility to stimulate the economy. Another video, What's the impact of the pandemic on gender equality? (posted the same day) features Michele Tertilt, a family economist who explains the unique barriers faced by women during COVID-19. Tertilt also provides a note of optimism on potential positive shifts moving forward. Viewers can tune into these videos and more at the link above, made available through the YouTube channel for VoxEU.org, a branch of the Centre for Economic Policy Research in London focused on "research-based policy analysis and commentary from leading economists."
